Abstract

A Gram-staining-negative, strictly heterotrophic and aerobic bacterium, strain TS-T44, was isolated from a saline lake, Tuosu Lake in Qaidam basin, Qinghai province, China. Its taxonomic position was investigated using a polyphasic approach. Cells of strain TS-T44 were non-endospore-forming, non-motile rods, 0.8–1.2 μm wide and 1.2–3.0 μm long. Catalase- and oxidase-positive. Growth occurred in the presence of up to 8  % (w/v) NaCl (optimum, 3.0  %) and at 15–35 °C (optimum, 25 °C) and pH 7.0–10.0 (optimum, pH 7.5–8.5). Cω7 was the predominant fatty acid. The major respiratory quinone was Q-10. The major polar lipids were phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylglycerol, phosphatidylethanolamine, an unidentified aminolipid and an unknown lipid. The DNA G+C content was 65.5 mol% [determined from the melting temperature (m)]. Phylogenetic trees based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that strain TS-T44 was associated with the genus and showed highest sequence similarity to CL-SK44 (97.7  %), CL-JM1 (97.5  %) and DPG-138 (97.3  %), and < 97  % to other species. DNA–DNA relatedness of strain TS-T44 to JCM 15447, JCM 15446 and KCTC 23882 was 23 ± 3  %, 33 ± 4  % and 35 ± 2  %, respectively. Based on the data presented, it is concluded that strain TS-T44 represents a novel species of the genus , for which the name sp. nov. is proposed. The type strain is TS-T44 ( = CGMCC 1.12478 = JCM 19516).
